Hackleboro Orchard Senior Portrait Session

Canterbury NH | Nick

High school senior portraits are a special time in a young person's life, and recently, I had the privilege of photographing Nick, a talented and spirited senior, at Hackleboro Orchard in Canterbury, NH. We met there an hour and a half before sunset, and it was the perfect setting for a memorable photoshoot. As I look back on our session, I can't help but smile and reflect on the magic that the golden hour brought to Nick's senior portraits.

Why the Golden Hour Shines for Photos

Warm, Soft Light:

The golden hour, which occurs shortly after sunrise and before sunset, gives everything a warm, soft, and flattering light. This gentle glow adds a touch of magic to portraits, creating a dreamy and ethereal atmosphere that's perfect for capturing the essence of a young person about to embark on a new adventure.

Rich, Vibrant Colors:

During the golden hour, the sky often boasts stunning hues of orange, pink, and purple. These colors provide a captivating backdrop, enhancing the beauty of the subject and the surrounding environment.

Reduced Harsh Shadows:

The angle of the sun during the golden hour minimizes harsh shadows and eliminates the need for artificial lighting. This results in a natural and balanced look that brings out the best in every shot.

Wishing Nick the Best on His Next Adventure

Nick, it was truly a pleasure to work with you during your senior portrait session. I admire your love of faith, country music and your musical talents, especially your skill with the guitar. The moments we shared as you strummed your guitar in your cowboy boots and hat were absolutely priceless.

As you take on your next adventure, I want to wish you the best of luck. May your journey be filled with creativity and inspiration.

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this special moment in your life. I have no doubt that you'll achieve great things, and I can't wait to see where your path leads you.
